Animalia for iPad

**Note: this is not Animalia for Education, but the GAME edition. Please visit to access the Graeme Base Education Suite: Animalia.**

Did you ever find the boy in every page of Animalia? Well, start looking again because he's just found a whole new set of hiding places! Animalia for iPad is here, better than ever, to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of this classic book. 

5/5 Digital Storytime Review

"Each page of the lavish artwork from the original book is available for exploration, including the ability to use two fingers to enlarge the pages for closer examination. This is a beautiful game, based on a beautiful book... Highly recommended!"

AppAdvice Review

"Animalia has been a great hardback book for the last 20 years, and is even better in its new digital form. Now the same great book has even more deluxe images to truly see the finite detail, and there are brand new touch based interactive features. This app really shows how the iPad can reinvent and provide brand new interest in a classic book."


Animalia for iPad features every illustration in beautiful detail, with six separate ways to explore and play: 


A read-through of the alliterations by the author, with different animations on every page.


Zoom in and find over 150 items scattered through the artwork - learn their names and hear what they sound like.


Play against the clock - easy, medium or hard. Once you find Graeme, he pops up, waves and heads off to hide again. But next time you look he's hiding somewhere else! Over 150 hiding places.


The most challenging game (provided you can resist tapping for clues). Figure out what the mystery shape is, then go find it in the artwork for maximum points. Complete all 26 pages to reveal the secret sequence of letters and claim your reward.


Work out the mystery word to bring the butterfly to life, then head off after it to find the correct object in the pages of the book!


Find the hidden butterfly star on every page!

Other features include:

• Interactive animal-sound board
• High resolution, zoomable illustrations
• Fun, responsive sounds for every interaction
• Animated reward download (set it as wallpaper)
